1: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
The wait for the first true next-gen open world RPG ended with the arrival of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The game was very well received by both fans and critics, it was no less than a dream come true for CD Projekt Red as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt scored 90+ on every platform. In terms of sales, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was also a massive success, it sold 4 Million Units worldwide in just first two weeks. CD Projekt Red are still supporting the game with weekly set of free DLCs and are very well set to unleash the paid expansion which is going to be the size of The Witcher 2 i.e. offering gameplay length of over 30 hours.
From Software's Bloodborne was termed as the "First True Killer Application" for PlayStation 4. My Colleague termed Bloodborne as "A game to be played, an experience to be lived". Who feared the Souls series has still good reasons not to approach it but we can't deny From Software's effort to bring a more modern gameplay to non-hardcore gamers and make it the base for an exclusive of great value.
3: Batman: Arkham Knight
The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight was a technical mess and Rocksteady and Warner Bros were forced to remove it from sales on Steam. Putting aside all these technical aspect of the game and talking about the gameplay experience, Batman: Arkham Knight offers something really special in this department. This conclusion of the video game series from Rocksteady is better than Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises.
Nintendo's decision to enter third-person shooter genre with a brand new IP, Splatoon, paid off really well and critics praised the game will positive reviews. Fans really loved Splatoon's overall style, presentation, gameplay mechanics and its soundtrack. There was some rage among Nintendo fans over the lack of voice chat and private lobbies—features, locking of on-disc content using Amiibo and few others. Still, Splatoon managed to sell in big numbers, debuted at number one and two respectively on sales charts in Japan, became the fastest-selling new IP on Wii U in the UK.
